This module addresses the use of assistive technology (AT) in vocational and postsecondary environments. The need for transition planning, to include AT, will be stressed, as well as resources for obtaining AT that can be used in these environments. The module will guide the user through the WATI AT assessment process, which systematically progresses through the stages of information gathering, decision-making, and implementation planning. The WATI Assistive Technology Decision-Making Guide supports the team with guiding questions designed to yield information about the student, environment(s), and tasks, leading to the selection of the most appropriate tools.
